We have always considered ourselves an old fashioned part of roadside America. Trundle Manor is currently the headquarters of the Secret Society of Odd Acquisition and is curated by the eccentric Mr Arm and Velda Von Minx. Built in 1910, Trundle...more
My husband and I took a tour of Trundle Manor a few weeks ago and loved it. Velda is so nice and fun to talk to, she knows a ton about history in general and the history of all of the interesting objects in their...More

Four of us had made reservations to tour this house on Aug.8 Saturday. Mr. Arm had confirmed the reservation. Two of the people in our group were from out of town, a four hour drive to be exact. No answer at the door.
I came to Trundle Manor based on reviews I read online. I will be honest in saying I was apprehensive at first but very pleased I decided to make this part of my Pittsburgh trip. In my opinion the tour and content are safe for...More
